For the Beauty of the Earth

We have moved to Nashville, we have heard Luke praying for a backyard and we have witness the childish faith as the seed moving a mountain, from start to finish, one week and a half. So as we settle down, we are grateful for so many blessings and beauty, and all the glory be His.



For the Beauty of the Earth
by Folliot S. Pierpoint



For the beauty of the earth



For the glory of the skies;



For the love which from our birth, 
Over and around us lies;



Lord of all to Thee we raise,
This, our hymn of grateful praise.



For the wonder of each hour,



Of the day and of the night;



Hill and vale and tree and flow'r,



Sun and moon and stars of light;



Lord of all to Thee we raise,
This, our hymn of grateful praise.



For the joy of human love,
Brother, sister, parent, child;
Friends on earth and friends above,
For all gentle thoughts and mild.
Lord of all to Thee we raise,
This, our hymn of grateful praise.



For Thyself, best gift Divine,
For the world so freely given,
For that great, great love of Thine,
Peace on earth and joy in heaven.
Lord of all to Thee we raise,
This, our hymn of grateful praise.
